Low Maintenance (but incredibly lovely) Wedding Hairstyles
Getting married is such an exciting and joyous occasion and every bride wants to look and feel beautiful and hair is a big part of that.

Low maintenance wedding hairstyles that are as beautiful as they are easy to create and manage! To lend a helping hand, we’ve made a list of our favourite low maintenance styles that we know you’ll absolutely love…

2. The Pony Tail

Loose, tight, straight, curled, and waved are all different ways to style your pony tail to make it unique to the look you’re after. Adding different coloured ribbons, bows, or shiny clips can give your pony tail that extra bit of bridal glam depending on the style you want to achieve. We’ve linked below a pony tail tutorial that we love and that’s really easy to follow.
